George L, it's funny you comment on Anarchy's entry being not eligible due to the file name not being the username. Your entry because it was submitted through the attachment process also dosn't have the username as the filename.

Please PM any of the forum moderators with the new link. Thanks.

I don't understand how to submit the link, SB. It's already as my username George L. if you point your cursor onto the photo...

Am I required to upload it to my site and link it?

Can't i use the attachment feature?

Sorry, for making trouble I just don't understand.

please explain, thank you.

Actually you are right enough. In order to see the filename i just right clicked your attached file and saw the data from the properties. It wasn't clear it was your entry, however if you click on the file and right click that and then click "save as" it'll show George L. I'll leave 613flavah to decide on whether you should resubmit via a new link.

I didn't have any remarkable red photos lying around, but I almost had the perfect opportunity. Macro work on a Lamborghini Embolado.

Unfortunately I had to attend my brothers graduation instead :P

A Lambourghini should be seen in it's entirety though. Having said this, i've actually used the engine of a Lambourghini for a competition on ozzu before, so i'm being sort of hypocritical here. :oops:

I wouldn't have said what it was though - only a small portion of what I wanted you to see would have been visible, thus drawing from your own imagination :)

If you search for the meaning else where; it can be feeling of awe, amazement, wanting to meet but anxious.

I admit, I could be exaggerating..

By "Archaic" I'm sure it means outdated. Such as the awe being an archaic (outdated) definition to dread.

Probably should be in the english thread... blame R_T for this :lol:

I think there is nothing wrong with how George overaggerated by using "dreading", people do that all the time in the English language and it is known as hyperbole:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperbole

Quote:
Hyperbole = exaggeration and is a figure of speech in which statements are exaggerated. It may be used to evoke strong feelings or to create a strong impression, and is not meant to be taken literally...

Some examples include:
these books weigh a ton. (weigh a great deal)
I could sleep for a year. (for a long time)

Thank you, Brian. I was going to post a surrender post as I wasn't really sure if it was the right one. I think I learned if from a comedy movie long long time ago and before you posted this I started to cloud myself with doubt that it was right and maybe that movie was 'comedy' and meant to make us laugh. Thanks for clarifying as other side of me I still feel right but lost words to stand my point.
